Imageboard/booru downloader which can download thousands of images from multiple boorus very easily.

Thanks to its powerful naming features, you just have to set your filename and save directory using all the tokens available, and the program will generate a filename using the image's information. With this, you can store and manage your pictures in advanced directory structures, and save image with custom filenames!

Grabber works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is available in English, French, Russian, simplified Chinese, and Spanish.


You can download the latest release here, or find all previous releases here.

For users interested, a nightly version is built automatically on every commit on the develop branch, and can be downloaded here. Note that it might be less stable than official releases, so use at your own risk.



  • Tabs to make multiple searches at the same time
  • Able to show results from multiple imageboards at the same time in a single tab
  • Remove duplicate results from multiple-imageboard searches
